Elizabeth Fenn's illustrated slide-lecture derives from her Pulitzer Prize-winning book Encounters at the Heart of the World, which tells the story of North Dakota’s Mandan Indians.  Widely known for hosting Lewis and Clark during the winter of 1804-05, the Mandans proved resilient and adaptable in the face of challenges that included epidemics of smallpox and whooping cough and invasions of Norway rats.
